Lata Mangeshkar contributed to cricket in her own way, her demise breaks my heart says Jay Shah

Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah expressed his condolences on the death of legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar.

“Lata didi had the power to move everyone and bring out a range of emotions with her soulful rendition and her melodious voice. She took a keen interest in cricket and contributed in her own way. The fact that she is no more amongst us breaks my heart. This is an irreparable loss,” tweeted Shah.

Dr Pratit Samdani, who was treating Lata Mangeshkar at Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital, said today, “It is with profound grief that we announce the sad demise of Lata Mangeshkar at 8:12 am. She has died because of multi-organ failure after more than 28 days of hospitalisation post-COVID-19.”

Mangeshkar was an Indian playback singer and occasional music composer and renowned for her sweet voice. That earned her the nickname “Nightingale of India.”
She began her career at the age of 13 in 1942, when she was born on September 28, 1929. Over the course of her seven-decade career, the melody queen recorded over a thousand Hindi film songs. She had sang songs in around thirty-six Indian regional languages as well as other languages.

She was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, in 2001 in recognition of her achievements to the country. And she is only the second vocalist to get this honour, after MS Subbulakshmi.

She also won three National Film Awards, among a slew of other accolades over the course of her career. Some of her most famous songs include ‘Aye Mere Vatan Ke Logon,’ ‘Babul Pyare,’ and ‘Lag Ja Gale Se Phir,’ among others.

Asha Bhosle, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, and Meena Mangeshkar are Mangeshkar’s younger siblings.
